Default How big of a pig can I fit....

I built a double barrel (big baby)smoker in the spring and Iím dying to try a whole Pig. The good news is that the cooking chamber was made out of an open top drum so I can just take the side off and slide the pig in. Hereís my question. How big of a pig can I fit in there? I only have 33.5 inches across. Anyone know if 40lb pig will fit? Iím assuming that I should be ok if I tuck the rear legs in.

Thanks and feel free to give me some tips on how to cook it.

I think you are OK with a 40# pig but I wouldn't go any bigger.
